Thursday

I have had my dream --like others--
and it has come to nothing, so that
I remain now carelessly
with feet planted on the ground
and look up at the sky --
feeling my clothes about me,
the weight of my body in my shoes,
the rim of my hat, air passing in and out
at my nose --and decide to dream no more.

~ William Carlos Williams, 1921
